So is there any strategy to this at all or do you just try to cast the spells off as fast as possible? If there were some kind of spell/counterspell system to allow a game strategy to develop I'd be interested but if it's just a blast-fest then it's a bit lame, I think.

Must admit the vid didn't inspire me one bit - they seem almost ashamed to show their app in action, resorting instead to 99% movie footage and titles.

Here is a tip video from the developer.

You can see them playing it waving their arms around casting spells in this ABC News video from 45 seconds to 1min 5 secs.

You mean the one linked from http://forums.toucharcade.com/showpo...55&postcount=8 ? It indeed is just a trailer.

There are some counter-spells (some 4 or 5) meant for protection. Nevertheless, I haven't really been able to use them quickly enough.

Try out Magic Wand for 99c. It's quite similiar to this.

Apparently you have to be a Slytherin to afford this... I'm just about ready to go to Gringott's and pull out some gallions, but ugh it's time for a new owl!

Hmm pro's and con's
